About Me

I'm Yuliia Bahniuk, an artist / illustrator / designer based in Cherkasy, Ukraine.
I graduated Cherkasy State Business-college and National Academy of Government Managerial Staff of Culture and Arts as an artist with the speciality of graphic design. So, I started my professional career as a graphic designer. After a few years of work in advertising/polygraphy/design agencies, I improved my skills and became also web-designer.

In the meantime, I discovered also my love for illustration, drawing, painting and digital art. 
In 2012, I left work in an agency and started full freelance, to do what I like and what brings me pleasure. In the same year, I became a microstock artist. I realised that my real passion is making illustrations and art.

Inspiration comes from almost anything: stars, sky, my lovely friends, travel, etc.  But mostly I'm inspired by Ukrainian ethnic traditions and ancient culture  — you may notice it in my works.

My usual tools 
Sketchbooks, liners, pencils, ink, paints(mostly acrylic), graphic tablet, Adobe Illustrator and some other graphic programs. 

Anything else 
I prefer nature than cities(especially megapolises), snail mail than e-mail, being alone/with my loved ones than hanging out in the crowd.

As I like snail mail, Postcrossing and making art, I started my own company with my sister: UkrPostCards. Now it's developing and preparing for life. Very soon you'll hear from me more about it.

You can buy digital illustrations, chocolate sets with my illustrations, and very soon postcards of my work on several places, the list of them you can find here
